I think alot of webmasters have become scared with Panda and this has led to widespread changes. Some webmasters are noindexing large sections of weak content on their site and others are deleting all outbound links. This massive amount of change will surely impact the serps and create a ripple effect. Not to mention the chance of Google making tweaks to Panda or adding new quality signals to the algo. I am not expecting the serps to be very stable for at least a few more weeks if not months.

I'm seeing the exact same thing. All of my sites went through a major ranking shakeup (negative) in unrelated niches.

There is another thread about it. Yes there are new updates rolled out. However the GOOD NEWS is as usual YOUTUBE is being promoted at a super duper large scale once again by our beloved Google. Well no doubt they love their own sister sites.

That's almost like incest. :)
Then again, Daddy always like to see his little girl do well. The real question is how many times is youtube going to be the debutante coming down the spiral staircase?
I'll believe in google once again as soon as they quit/cease promoting their product (sites) over the Rest Of The Web.

Let's discuss algo changes in the dedicated thread: Google Updates and SERP Changes - May 2011 [webmasterworld.com]. That makes everything a lot more useful as a future reference.
